    Using some parts designed for a wheel chair Payton and I made a harness to assist her sitting up straight in the new sidecar. It works. Now we will put some miles on it and see if any improvements are needed.

    Another Myth needs to be put to rest. " Once sidecar brake is hooked up ABS will not work. That is incorrect. With the sidecar disk brake quick disconnected hooked up the ABS works as it should

    l am unfamiliar with the myth so wondering what you meant. So are you saying that ABS works both with side car attached as well as with it disconnected. But always good to hear results from those who have experienced it.
    My memory's not as sharp as it used to be.

    Az good to hear from you. The unknowing were saying that once the sidecar was hooked into the system the ABS would no longer work. However it works perfectly with or with out the sidecar. The quick disconnect allow removal of the sidecar with out getting air in the system.
    I had expected a bit of a different free to the brake pedal , that is not the case either.

    Approaching 3,000 miles. Enough miles to check wear pattern on tires. Really good way to do this is ride slow over dust or sandy drive way or road and then on to hard road . Really works if you get it right.
    Front tire is prefect so far. Sidecar tire is a flat thread car tire, wear is favoring the inside 1/2 to 3/4 slightly. The bikes rear is slightly favoring the left side. While handling well this is not uncommon. A little adjust will be done on Monday.
    Some of the possible reason are simple. Lean angle it what both the Sidecar and bike are set at empty no rider. The bike is slightly 1-3 degrees left. That is so when rider mounts it returns to straight up. Weight of ride has some to do with how it is set .
    The sidecar is also set to lean slightly right to for about the same reasons. Once again after a good test it may need tweaking. If toe is out of adjustment the results are cross wear and handling issues. Toe seems fine.
    SWAG tells me take 1 degree out of each and go.
